Friday Revision Homework - Stitches 46 - 50

While recovering from my cold I watched a bit of the figure skating at the Olympic Games. In between the various athletes' performances, Sunbonnet Sue appeared and skid on the ice.

  1. I'm glad Sue has that nice warm scarf on such a cold day. It really looks like it is knit.

    1. Thank you! It is always a challenge to use the five stitches in a smart way. The Detached Up and Down Buttonholes Stitch seemed good for a 'knitted' scarf.

  4. Oh, Queenie! She's fabulous!!!!
    You must have such patience!I love the effect of the two-sided insertion ..... it's so pretty! It looks a lovely snow coat!
    And how are you, are you better now?

    1. Thank you Barbara,
      The Two-sided Insertion Stitch pattern on the coat took a lot of time (and patience) do to, but it think it makes a nice filling pattern.
      Yes, thanks I am getting better. I'm sorry to hear you have been ill, too. This year the 'bug' is a nasty one!

  6. Oh, very well done. She's an absolute poppet, and you've made good use of the stitches to create the effects of the materials.

    1. Thank you, Rachel.
      I think the Bayeux Stitch looks good on the gloves, and the Colonial Knots are great for the snow.

  10. I have loved each of your Sunbonnet Sue girls but this one take first prize in my eyes. You worked the Two-sided Insertion stitch around a curve so neatly. I'm happy you are feeling better and hope the cold weather ends soon.

    1. Thank you Maureen,
      I have had fun making each Sunbonnet Sue in a different way. Here I wanted to use the traditional chubby little girl, playing at skating in her backyard while pretending she was one of the stars at the OS.
